OK if we're going to take it semi-seriously, I'm in.
My character walks in the door of the inn. He seems human, middle-aged, self-confident. His travelling clothes are worn, his backpack light. He strides up to the bar and demands a beer, which he quickly dispatches. He passes over a coin of the appropriate size, and asks for another. This one he sips slowly, the dust washed out of this throat. He looks around the room. Is he looking for someone in particular?

PS no way do you all get to know who and what the guy is straightaway. This is a story after all.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

Maximus enters the taven, however, he is wearing a black cloak and has his face covered. You can however notice a sword across his back that looks difficult to wield. He sits down at a table, and orders a beer and some food.

Fair enough, only played D&D one summer with some summer camp friends, but I remember I was

Name: Alastair Plainstrider
Race: Half-Elf
Class: Wizard
Sex: Male

A newcomer walks into the bar. As he reaches for his money pouch on his belt, you notice a wand of magic missles nestled between various bags of holding, alchemist's stones, and potions. A faint smell of singed hair indicates his proficiency at fire spells.

While all the patrons are drinking in the bar, a small figure scrounges around in the back rooms. He's looking for something - what, we do not know, but it is of importance to him. Holding a dagger between his teeth, he picks another lock, only to be disappointed with more papers. Where could it be...

Gregor looks around and studies the crowd. Clothed in studded leather, small pouch and a 2 handed sword strapped to his back. He looks at the waitress then the bar. He grins (makes a lust roll) then starts walking to the bar. Approaching the bar Gregor in his right hand rubs his lucky Unicorn tooth as he asks the bartender, "Gregor thirsty and down on his luck. You think Gregor can have grog for half price?"

Okay, I have looked over the various player characters and have decided that 6 players should be enough for now, so I have edited the title to read Recruitment Full. There may be room for a couple more people, but we seem to have a varied group of players at the moment.

Remember to keep in character as best as possible and use lots of descriptions in the story. This should be easy for you English majors!

The following players and their characters have been recruited for this D&D based campaign and story:

1. Quirk- Cheezus, Elf, Cleric
2. sackett58-Gregor Tombs, Half-Orc, Fighter/Rogue (I assume that Fighter will be your main class and Rogue will be your multi-class?)
3. jonesthecurl- ?
4. Jace22-Maximus Burst,Genasi (Fire Soul), Fighter
5. safariguy5- Alastair Plainstrider, Half-Elf, Wizard (Half-Elf Power: Ranger proficient with bow)
6. slowreactor- Firnam, Human, Rogue

Very well, let us head back to the Dancing Goat Tavern & Inn.

DM wrote:Each of you have entered the inn and tavern for a reason, and while eating and drinking you have all managed to run in to one another. Most of you have been commenting lewdly on the very pretty serving girl...but you have witnessed that she can very well hold her own. Whenever she gets a free moment, you watch her walk over to the table with the older gentleman dressed in black and inspecting a pair of fine leather boots. Behind the bar is the bartender, a burly man...a bit pudgy, but barrel-chested and large forearms. He is busy cleaning tankards and telling unruly patrons to watch their step here in the Dancing Goat. As he is settling a small argument from some customers, he raises an eyebrow as he thinks he hears something in the back room,"Hmmm? I wonder what that noise was?" He carefully pulls out a small club from under the bar and heads to the back room to inspect.

Meanwhile, everyone in the tavern has had their weapons checked in (at least the big, nasty weapons...there are more than likely a couple of small daggers hidden in boots or sleeves).

Across the room, in a dark corner, there is a group of shadowy men playing Wizard Bones, which is the local dice game. You hear one of the men shout in excitement,"HAH! I beat you that time, boys! Time to pay up! WOOHOO!"

After the man had won an apparently large pot of money, he decides to call the waitress by first rudely whistling and then shouting,"Hey! Miss! Miss! LADY!...HEY, BAR WENCH! Why don't you set our table up with some more ale! And don't water it down this time!"


Alright, now your characters have visited with each other, and now each of you can give a brief history of how and why your character is at the Tavern and Inn and then tell me what you plan to do from the story hook I just gave you. Jonesthecurl can go last, since he is being very mysterious. Once I have gone over each of your histories and actions, we will continue on with the campaign.

And there is no half price here...if you want half price, then you get half as much. Now, you must excuse me for the moment, I will be right back...I have to go check on something in the back room."

The bartender turns away from Gregor, and starts for the back room while holding a small club.

Background:

Firnam was born under rather unfortunate circumstances. Born to a poor peasant family, his parents were killed during a raid when he was but a wee lad, and had been fending for himself ever since, getting help from anyone that pitied him. Soon enough, he learned that with his impoverished background, the best way of obtaining what he needed was by stealing it. He started to develop his skills, at first with simple pickpocketing, and evolved to encompass skills such as breaking in and spying. His short, thin figure allows him to access hard-to-reach places, and also hide very easily. Recently, he started taking odd jobs from anyone who needed to get something from anyone else.
Alignment: Unaligned.

Action:

Where could that book be! His employer, a rival of the tavern, said that there was a book with the all the tavern's records, and if he could get that book back to him, he would be paid handsomely. He was just about to pick another lock when he heard footsteps. Looking around, he quickly noticed an empty barrel with the lid half off, and he jumped in and quickly replaced the lid.

Hmm, like I said, not very familiar with D&D, but I'd like to take ranger as my second class if possible. If not possible due to me being a spellcaster, I'm not sure whether Illusionist is counts. Also, due to my ignorance, I was reading up on the website, and was wondering if monk is an option. So for my second class I'd hope to be

1. Ranger if possible.
2. Illusionist otherwise(is that even a separate class?)
3. Monk if neither the above work(New to E4??)

Background:

Tall, dark, mid to late 20's. Alignment: Lawful Good. Been through his share of questing. Notable quests involved cleaning out an old castle of its dark infestation after the passing of its old owner. Got a rather nasty surprise to find out that the next of kin happened to be a vampire who promptly attacked the party after its quest. Also, another quest (pretty sure it was a premade one) involved passing through a jungle infested with snake people (Yuan-Ti I believe they were called). Managed to ally party with forest elves who had built a base in the center of the forest. Third quest involved trying to get aid to an army seiging a castle. Encountered a 2-headed dragon and an evil dwarf paladin riding a dog that was damn near impossible to kill and rode away when he found he was outmatched. I remember having a wand of magic missles, fireball, flaming sphere, the like. Basically, I'm recounting the games I've played. Interpret what you will out of that.

I plan on going out back and rifling through the pockets of the AoG corpse to see if anything useful was in there.

Background:
Though he may just look like a mercenary, Maximus actually isn't from around here. Or from this plane for that matter. He is actually from Brass in the plane of fire. Being a human in Brass, he was always looked down upon, but he knew he was special. He wasn't sure why, but Maximus always seemed to have some proficiency in manipulating fire, dispite not having any magical training at all. He detests slavery, so during the night for a couple of years, he was eventually captured and forced to be a slave for life(harsh punishment). One day he found a ring and when he put it on, he was here.
Alignment: Chaotic Good

Action:
Maximus is just sitting at his table drinking, not really caring about anything at the moment.

Background:
Gregor was born in the brothels of Cortans. His mother of Orc blood worked there for men wanting a little something on the wilder side. He would clean tables at the brothel and occasionally as he grew he would listen to tales of adventure from those that came. Gregor became a somewhat big brother to the wench's that worked there. It wasn't uncommon for the women to find a little extra in their coffers as Gregor would go outside and look around the horses and wagons of the patrons.
But soon Gregor wanted to see the outside world and hooked up with a mercenary who taught him how to wield a sword. And now 8 years later Gregor found himself in a bar with little money and no work.
As the bartender slips to the backroom Gregor takes a half full mug of grog and drinks the rest. "Gregor thirsty" he replies to himself.

The best way to describe Cheezus is to say he's a fundamentalist elf. One glance at him and anyone can tell he is devoutly religious. Adorned with prayer beads and holy symbols he appears to be an elf on a mission. His mission would be to see his race and god find their rightful place in the world. He feels there will be a drastic and violent shift in power during his lifetime. He is certain he will play an important role in this change. So he travels the land looking for adventure involving humans and other races, searching for his role in the prophecy.

He is strong for an elf and wields a rather large hammer. He routinely chants prayers and songs for guidance.

action: Cheezus enjoys a smoke and studies the tavern patrons. He pays close attention to the man with the boots.

Gregor gets an uneasy feeling from the holy man. "Gregor must keep eye on sneaky Elf", he says to himself.
